A FETI-DP Method for the Mortar Discretization of Elliptic Problems with Discontinuous Coefficients
Second order elliptic problems with discontinuous coefficients are considered. The problem is discretized by the finite element method on geometrically conforming non-matching triangulations across the interface using the mortar technique. The resulting discrete problem is solved by a FETI-DP method. We prove that the method is convergent and its rate of convergence is almost optimal and independent of the jumps of coefficients. Numerical experiments for the case of four subregions are reported. They confirm the theoretical results.
